Classic Sports Card of The Day

04 Sep


1976 Topps football card of former pro football defensive end Walt Patulski, who was the top overall draft pick of the 1972 NFL draft. Drafted out of Syracuse by the Buffalo Bills, he would become one of many of the team’s draft busts over the years. Patulski played 4 uneventful seasons for the Bills until he was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals in 1977. He played only a single season for the Cards before a knee injury ended his career. He has been active with the Syracuse Board of Education and the Boys And Girls Clubs of America since his playing days ended, and was inducted into the Polish-American Sports Hall of Fame in 2014.
